Can't wait to watch someone playing the entire game as it looks like it won't run in my computer. Really amazing, congratulations, especially for the last screenshot: it's beautiful!

Ron, can you explain me why I love this screenshots so much?!?!?!
Posted by EDU on Sep 5, 2012 ten to four am
Amazing,and i just noticed that will be availible for Wii U so i will buy it.
And now, i would LOVE to know if are you thinking or there is ANY posibility in the next years to see you making another MONKEY ISLAND,maybe the one you didnt show as.
If someone knows something pls tell me! i dont want to die without feelling the magic of MI by ron gilbert again,and probably Ron you dont want to die without making one LAST monkey island.

Lucas Arts has the rights to MI so it's up to them, not Gilbert. And we'd collectively raise the money to buy those rights from them faster than they'd decide to produce another MI.
Enjoy The Cave now.

Why not raise it then?

Hmm my name was supposed to be 'you can't spell "can't" without "can"'.

Ron has said many many many times before, the rights to MI are "not for sale". George doesn't need anymore money and has no reason to sell them.
Remember, George sold Pixar for Steve Jobs for less than $100,000,000 and Jobs sold it for $6,000,000,000. That had to hurt.
Everyone is fooling themselves if they think the community can raise 5 or 10 million dollars just to buy the rights to MI and that doesn't include the money to make the game.

But if theres another MI maybe they can call Ron? the graphics of the new game would look amazing in a point and click adventure,expecially MI!

I totally agree, The Cave graphics seem to fit the genre pretty well. I remember how Grim Fandango was amazing, but it was far from what I knew as adventure games. Not that I'm an orthodox, but if it's not in this pseudo-2d perspective, I have a hard time thinking it's an adventure game. Of course, just a personal problem.
And apparently there actually will be a Beneath a Steel Sky 2. Who'd have thought this would finally happen? I'm thinking that if it turns out to be a proper sequel and remarkable game on its own, maybe the industry will think twice about ignoring this genre and someone may consider giving Ron his well deserved chance to make MI3.

Man, the art style in The Cave is so beautiful. I hope it have the strenght to amaze the generation of FPS and MMORPG players. I hope they can discover how rewarding an adventure game can be and how unique the experience is.

"I like fun experiences, not getting hit over the head and punched in the face. We spend all day failing at work; we don�t want to come home and fail at our entertainment."
For me this statement means that he perfectly understands what I'm looking for in a game and I'm sure I'm gonna get it with The Cave!

Looks fantastic! Especially the third screenshot has perfect "dark" mood.

If my calculations are correct, there are 35 possible teams. There has to be a BEST TEAM and a WORST TEAM, and a MOST AVERAGE TEAM. I will keep playing until I find all three of these super-teams.

The secret of mickey mouse island

I just finished Monkey Island 2 SE and actually I don't know why I did do this to me. Old wounds are torn open. As you mentioned in the audio comment I belong to the group of people that hate the ending.
Now that George Lucas sold his company to Disney is there any way for you to get the rights of Monkey Island and do your "Monkey Island 3a"???
In great awe

I've been having a throught that's been brewing for a while; If you ever had any free time (considering you're probably busy making The Cave/Doublefine Adventure/Osso Buco) I'd love to see a documentary series where you talk in great detail about the games you've made over the years.

Ron, sorry for the OT but I have just read your comment about Diseny-Lucas affair...
And I just come here to say that if you want to go for a Kickstarter please think something to Europe !!! Because here in Europe we are not allowed to use kickstarter and here you have a HUUUUGE fan base.
I think million of people would be at your side in the struggle to take back Monkey & MM (and Zak ? Think also to Zak...) !

I love Monkey Island. Always have, always will!
That said, I'm really looking forward The Cave!
I have been known to bang-on (just a bit) about the old adventure games of my childhood, how good they were, how kids thesedays need to play them, how they need to be revived! All that jazz!
But I think we can leave that behind us with The Cave!
The humour you can bring to the game and the graphical style of tim will always be a winning combo and for people like me, it brings a grin to my weathering face!
But The Cave, as pictured above, looks simply BEAUTIFUL and seems like a really awesome platformingy adventure! In fact it has so much to it, I don't quite know how to accurately categorise it.
It's exciting, it's new, and looks as a tasty as a steaming plate of chops!!
